What Is Hemp, and How Is It Defined?
Hemp has been cultivated on planet earth for over 10,000 years. It has been an important source of food and fibre with references dating back to ancient China and Mesopotamia. Applications of hemp plants evolved from simple rope and coarse woven fabric to paper and sailcloth.
Inside of the Hemp plant contains valuable phytocannabinoids. Compared to the Cannabis “Marijuana” plant, Hemp is defined by the Farm Bills of 2014/2018 as containing less than .3% THC by dry weight. (THC is the Psychoactive molecule of Marijuana).
Whole Plant Hemp Extract contains all the nutrients contained within the plant. This includes, but is not limited to Cannabinoids and Terpenes. Primary Cannabinoids such as CBD, THC, CBG, and CBC generally occur in Whole Plant Extract, however, their potency is lower than CBD Isolate.
Whole Plant Hemp Products may provide great benefits as having the “Entourage effect” of multiple Cannabinoids and Terpenes together, however, they lack high concentrations of specific cannabinoids such as CBD and CBG that you may be looking for.
What Is CBD Isolate?
CBD Isolate is a higher concentration of the molecule CBD, which has been enriched and refined. The process of isolating and concentrating CBD allows for higher potency of CBD products. In isolated powder form, CBD Isolate is generally 97-99% pure. The purity of this material enables Procana to offer high potency; Extra Strength CBD and Maximum Strength CBD products.
